Good link round up Infidel ... the swearing in on the Constitution thing done up by the Congresswoman is something I havent thought of, but I think it would be more appropriate to do in this nation for various swearing event's, court's or whatever ... I mean ... this is 21st century America, not BC ancient middle east, being it is part of OUR culture, eh?

Salon piece on the conservative money making movement, etc ... it's so true, and I even understand promoting economic's and such .... but what they are doing is a whole different ball game ... what I like calling "neo corporate communism". I actually like at time's doing posting's on the so called conservative politic's of today ... reason being, is because I dont have to do much work/ research with them, they are straight up in your face about their agenda ... they will tell you right out their out to "f**k" you, and even show their blueprint and proposal's of how they plan to. I am actually shocked that they get the vote's that they do, especially by life long conservative's.

Thanks for the comments! RC, I agree about the use of the Constitution for swearing-in. This will become more and more of an issue as more and more non-Christians get elected to national office. One more thing for the right-wingers to go apeshit about.

More good links!

On the "The People Who Believe The Victims of Sandy Hook Were Actors" story the idea that Fox is doing Obama's bidding is the ultimate weird report for me.

Great collection of links, again! The one on Dubai was especially timely for me, since someone close to me has begged me to go there for a visit, extolling all its fun and glitz.

I said I would rather spend a week on Constitution Beach in East Boston rather than visit that fake, overblown disaster in the desert. There is absolutely nothing there that attracts me. Zero.

Yes. It appears to be Las Vegas on meth.

CM: You made a good point.

Blurber: These nuts can get pretty nasty.

SK: Authenticity-wise, it probably makes Las Vegas look like Rome. Also, you can get arrested in Dubai for kissing in public (people have). Fun place.
